How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
As always with Cygnet the talent carries the show. Though I feel that the play itself held back at the end (the true details are much more disturbing than the musical's version), the actors/singers were all amazing. The emotion in the singing was powerful, the music was mesmerizing and there was not a single person in the cast who seemed off-key or out-of-character. Cygnet is brave to present this dark, tragic musical: there is no redemption in the finale, only a sense of horror and dread, yet I would see this again just for the perfection of the performances. Highly recommended!
